The Lord Baden-Powell Society

Jamboree Appeal


What are the key things that a young Scout will learn and experience at an Australian Jamboree or Venture? Is it leadership, independence, resourcefulness or survival? Or perhaps it’s a combination of all of these qualities plus many more, like social interaction, care, respect and appreciation of others?

There’s no one right answer, of course! However, as many former Scouts will know, attending a Jamboree or Venture is one of life’s first big adventures, and a pivotal experience in a young Scout’s development.

Working in Patrols, learning by doing, meeting new people from a variety of different cultures and backgrounds, pushing themselves out of their comfort zones and living by the Scout Law over a sustained period are the essential ingredients for a life changing experience.

Each year the Lord Baden-Powell Society appeals to Scouting supporters and others to donate to the Jamboree Appeal. All funds raised go directly to financially assisting Scouts in need to attend the experience of a lifetime – a Jamboree or Venture.

In 2012 the Lord Baden-Powell Society provided financial assistance to over 300 Australian Scouts to attend the 23rd Australian Jamboree, in Maryborough Queensland (you can read some of their letters of thanks below).

The next Australian Jamboree, which will be in NSW in 2016, will be our focus over the coming years. However, the Scouting Movement has never been busier with many life changing events taking place here in Australia and around the Asia-Pacific region. So with your generous support we will look to also assist those young Scouts who are willing to take the next challenge and represent Australia at international events.

Please donate today!!

Experiencing a Jamboree and seeing how much Scouting has to offer inspires me to do great, achieve my ASM and continue through Venturers and Rovers and perhaps one day become a Leader and help educate our future scouts.

I would like to personally thank the Lord Baden-Powell Society, without them I would be at Scouts listening to others talk about the Jamboree and wishing, just wishing that I would have had the opportunity to attend.

I’d like to thank you for allowing me to go on the incredible adventure of AJ2013. This could only happen because of the Grant my parents received from the Lord Baden Powell Society.

I had a great time socialising, having fun at the activities, washing, cooking and making new friends. People came from all around the world and one of my best experiences was meeting someone from Japan.

This once in a life time experience was amazing and it’s all thanks to YOU.

Chris Harper, NSW

Without you I could not have gone to the Jamboree and experienced the fun and all the challenging activities, the fantastic concerts, fireworks and meeting new people all around Australia!!

So thank you so much for giving me the this wonderful experience.


Georgia Brown, TAS

I was very privileged and very lucky to receive a grant from the Baden-Powell Society Grant which helped me go to the Jamboree.

Going to the Jamboree was like a big holiday with over 11,000 Scouts from all over Australia and the world.

I had an amazing time at the jamboree and hoping to go to AJ2016 which is being held in Sydney.
